Our Investment Process


OIG carefully chooses and analyzes which deals it pursues in order to save time for both the firm and any sell side advisors.


OIG presents opportunities to our investment committee prior to submitting any LOI, in order to be certain we will be fully pursuing the transaction.

LOI / Debt Sourcing

OIG will submit LOI's for companies that we believe we can acquire, on terms we have every intention of closing with.

Due Diligence

Once our LOI and exclusivity are approved, we proceed to due diligence (including legal diligence and a buy side QofE).


OIG's legal team works diligently to close transactions in a timely manner.
